PS4 to be announced February 20th??? Will Sony beat M$ out the gate this time?

The interwebz has been buzzing pretty loud regarding the PS4/Orbis specs, the tech leaks and the dev kits specs.
And just yesterday Sony released the following video...

Is Sony trying to beat the leaks and steal back the buzz? I believe the answer is a resounding yes! The teaser doesn't show anything definitive but there are some illusions that might be abstract close ups of different angles of the PS4 mixed in with the 3D Triangles, circles, squares and X's. and from the bits I think I spotted it looks alot like the above fan rendering!
February is gonna be an exciting month, if they do announce the PS4 on the 20th, I'm betting we'll see some PS4 game trailers come E32013 and maybe a holiday 2013 launch. And I really believe Sony realizes they need to deliver this generation and be truly competitive with their pricing against Microsoft. 
Some other things Sony needs to do to make the PS4 succeed is backwards compatibility with the PS3, continue PSN integration, if the PSN is strictly for the PS3 that is a huge mistake, it would make all the DLC/games/ music/ movies etc that we bought via the PS Store obsolete and  that would make ALOT of unhappy gamers!
Simply continue the momentum the PlayStation brand has right now, with brilliant exclusives, an enormous library of games and I think Sony's next gen console has a good chance at taking back the title #1 console on the market!


  1. If SONY were 1000% serious about being the very best console ever, they would make the PS4 backwards compatible with not only PS3 but also PS2 games. I learned recently that the console with the largest library of games in human history is... the PS2! So if the managed to make it backwards compatible with all those games, they would be very, very wise.

    If the PS4 is not backwards compatible with PS3 games I will not be purchasing it. And it better not be a feature they remove over time, as they did with the PS3.

  2. BW is novel but I don't need it to play my PS1 and PS2 games, I still have functional PS1 and PS2 consoles, and if there's a PS1 or PS2 game I want NO PROBLEM MON! With Sony's acquision of Gaikai Cloud Gaming Services last July ( ) every single Playstation game ever made will become available from the cloud! Or via the enhanced PS Store.
    Since you've had your PS3 how many PS2 or PS1 games have you played?
    Me? Zero.
    I can't wait to see what developers have been making with the Orbis dev kits!
